I read a story the other day that said that growers in Humboldt are also against Prop 19. I'm sure that many of them, when they got into the biz, were advocates of legalization, but now that there will be more competition, taxes, lower prices and therefore lower profits, they are against it.

It just goes to show you that greed is such a motivating factor that folks would rather make lots of money while risking jail time than vote for freedom to make their industry legal!

Ya know Purp, you are probably right about Humboldt growers. However, I don't grow or sell and I voted against 19. At this point I don't trust the elected officials of this state to tax and regulate in a responsible manner. We need to free non-violent offenders and change the pension structure for State Employees in order to create revenue for failing education and crumbling infrastructure. California is dying from unsustainable retirement plans and an ever-expanding prison system. Until they(The douche-bags in Sacto) accept some of the blame for our current problems, I'm not sending any new money their way. Right now, those who want or need pot can get it cheap and fairly.

So, I agree Fuck'em. Just fuck a different 'em.
